VIEW FROM THE ENEMY: Reading Fan On Kagawa, Crying On The Telly and Di Canio The Fascist

VIEW FROM THE ENEMY: Reading Fan On Kagawa, Crying On The Telly and Di Canio The Fascist

United take on Reading this weekend with the aim of stopping the rot we had to endure last week. Getting knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid before blowing a 2-0 lead against Chelsea made for a pretty depressing couple of games. We need to turn it around tomorrow and you would imagine [...]

VIEW FROM THE ENEMY: Chelsea Fan On Benitez, Signing Van Persie and Abramovich’s Mistakes

You would imagine that Sir Alex Ferguson will channel all the frustration from Tuesday’s unjust result against Real Madrid in to Sunday’s Cup game against Chelsea. Our opponents also lost in Europe this week but their players seem far more resigned to losing than ours this season. Still, in one off cup games, with both [...]

VIEW FROM THE ENEMY: Wigan fan on rivalling Barca, selling Moses and the importance of fans

Whilst it was the 4-4 game against Everton that really cost us the title last season, the 1-0 defeat to Wigan when they were enjoying top form, certainly didn’t help. What was usually a guaranteed three points, often after a 4-0 win, was a game that saw our grip on the title loosen. Alan Moore [...]

VIEW FROM THE ENEMY: Swansea fan on slimy Rodgers, Allen’s worth and signing Berba

Premier League newbies, Swansea, were one of the clubs that were favourites to be relegated last season, but thanks to the leadership of Brendan Rodgers, finished in a very respectable 11th place on the same points as 10th placed West Brom and just five points behind Liverpool. Since then, they have lost both their manager [...]

Poor Aston Villa. After assembling a half decent squad with some top youngsters ready to make their way through, they only go and employ the hapless manager who relegated their biggest rivals, plays dull football and dragged them down the table. Damian Dugdale, from The Villa Blog, has looked ahead to the coming season. Scott [...]

Whilst there has been bad feeling between Liverpool and United for some time, it’s hard to remember the last time there was as much hatred between us as there was last season. After Luis Suarez was found guilty of racially abusing Patrice Evra, their club disgracefully stuck by him, continuing to stick their head in [...]

Repeat of first home game 2006/2007 – Fulham

Repeat of first home game 2006/2007 – Fulham

Manchester United’s first home game of the brilliant 2006/2007 season was that 5-1 stuffing of Fulham. We sold our top scorer, Ruud van Nistelrooy and didn’t buy a replacement. We brought in Michael Carrick as our new number 16 but there weren’t many who had him as their first choice to replace Roy Keane. In [...]

Last season, Chelsea became one of the worst teams in the history of Champions League football, rivalled by Liverpool, to win the competition. After being outplayed in pretty much every single game, somehow they managed to drag themselves to a penalty shoot-out in the final which they won. For all their success in the cup [...]

After Alan Shearer lead Newcastle to the Championship before Chris Hughton brought them back up the following season, there really was a sense of doom and gloom surrounding the North East club. Mike Ashley was an incredibly unpopular owner and there was uproar when Alan Pardew was given the manager’s job. However, thanks to some [...]

VIEW FROM THE ENEMY: City Fan On the Tevez turnaround, winning the league and FFP

Whilst I hope the feeling at the end of last season sticks with our players for a long time, serving as the motivation for them to work even harder, I have spent the past couple of months trying to pretend that 2011-2012 didn’t happen. We didn’t drop eight points behind then go eight points clear, [...]
